complaint in Prussia growing out ol the dis?

millions fall to Prussia. This is an avenge of
three dollars for each man which, when com?
pared with the equal amount divided among
the generals, makes a strange contrast. In
the first place it is four millions divided
among 700,000, and in the other, lour millions
divided among sixteen.
-It is amusing to observe the many modes
people have of dead-heading their way through
this world. A Michigan farmer went into
Detroit and bucked the tiger until he got
bucked out of the currency he possessed. He
vainly sought various means of transportation
home, and finally concluded to effer a tract of
land for sale cheap, and thU3 induce some one
to go out with him and look, at it. This bait
took. Next day a gentleman started witn
him. and after two days' travel, arrived at a
little station and put up for the eight, only fire
miles from borne. Next morning :ue former
was gone, and investigation proved that he
didn't own any land, bul he had sold the
would-be purchaser nevertheless.
-The British Parliament was prorogued on
Monday by royal commission until November
7. The Queen's speech acknowledges with
satisfaction the provision made by Parliament
for the Princess Louise and Prince Arthur. The
announcement Is made that the relations of
Great Britain with fo. eign powers are of a
friendly character. The treaty of 1856 having
been revised by the conference recently held
In London, a hope is expressed for continued
tranquillity in the East. The speech dwells
with satisfaclion upon the treaty ol Washing?
ton, and hopes for a general recognition of the
j principle ior guiding ma-itime conduct of neu?
trais. Full reliance 1?, placed upon the dispo?
Bition of Amerlcanp. to carry out all the pro?
visions o? the treaty. The Queen is anxious to
meethhe expressed wishes of the French Gov?
ernment for ibe alteration of some of the pro?
visions of the commercial treaty of 1860, but
would witness with concern any change which
would restrict commercial intercourse. The
Commons are thanked for the liberal supplies
they have granted. Extraordinary powers
granted for the repression of agrarian outrages
in Westmeath have thus far answered their
purpose, while in other portions ot Ireland
there is a gratifying immunity from crime.
The remainder of the speech is devoted to
topics ol a local character.
An English Estimate of the South.
An article in the Saturday Review of
August 5, reviewing Professor Draper's His?
tory of the American Civil War, is worthy of
notice as a pleasing evidence that, in Eng?
land at least, the principles involved in the
war between the States are reasonably well
understood, and,, also, that a disposition ex?
ists to do full, though tiW., justice to the
defeated South. The reviewer says, with
reason, that a fair history of the war is not
yet to be expected, and he doubts whether
such a history-dealing impartially with the
motives and actions of both belligerents
will ever be written. Those histories, there?
fore, "must be regarded as comparatively
"fair and honest, in which the conduct and
"claims of the South are not wilfully dis?
torted and misstated-in which the writer,
"if himseir unable to apprehend, and there
"fore incompetent to present to bis readers,
"the political aspect of ihe dispute unen?
cumbered by ethical questions, which
"neither of the parties to the Federal com
"pact were entitled to import into it, at
"least endeavors to give the factB as they
"really occurred, and to repeat the argu?
ments of the South as they were actually
"stated by Southern writers and orators."
The reviewer is of opinion that no other
Northern author bas approached so nearly
to the comparative standard as Dr. Draper,
who "makes an evident and studious effort
"to be not only accurate, but liberal-not
"only to etate the facts correctly, but to clo
"justice to the motives and the convictions
"of men whom he regards as utterly and un?
pardonably wrong." From such a source
this is high praise indeed. The reviewer,
however, believes that a careful reader will
find in Dr. Draper's pages "abundant reason
"to doubt whether the North was really so
"thoroughly in the right as it appears to
"thia Northern author." He says :
uThe reader will find, In short, that the case
of the North res'" entirely on the assumption
that slavery is a aime ; and however little
he may be dispos?e to dispute this assump?
tion, it will occur to every one not blinded
by partisanship, or rendered careless by pre?
conceived judgment, that it was one which
the North had no right to Import into its Fed?
eral relations. No point was more clearly as?
certained, more distinctly laid down in the
very lormaUon of the Union, than the uninter?
rupted and Inviolable sovereignty of the States
over their own domestic institutions. The
right of the South to maintain slavery wilhin
her borders was constitutional;y indisputable;
it had been donbly recognized by the North,
I In the clause forbidding Congress to prohibit
the slave trade before 1608, and in the fngl
live slave law, which formed an article ol the
constitution; and having once entered into
union on equal terms with the slave States,
the North was bound, within that Union and
during its 'continuence, cot only to make no
attacks on slavery, where it existed under
State laws, but to recognize ils existence as
an institution coeq.ial with lreedom within
the area ol Federal jurisdiction. It ls absurd
to suppose that the slave States were to admit
the enormi'.y cr even the inferi?; ity of their
own system, and to accept its exclusion irom
Ihe Territories in which they bad an equal
right-most of which were, indeed, originally
their own. Thia fact once understood-lt
being once perceived that, so long as the
Union subsisted, the South was equal with the
North, and slavery as good as lreedom, in
point ol all Federal rights-lt ia impossible for
a reader of Dr. Draper's History not to per?
ceive that in the political battles waged be?
tween North and South, the latter was usually
acting in self-defence, and that in nea -Iv every
case the Forth was the aggressor, and was en?
croaching on thc equality and infringing the
rights of the South. The commencement of the
feud was the attempt of the North to exclude
States claiming to enter the Union with slave
constitutions, at the same time that free States :
were admitted without dispute. It was clearly
impossible that such a pretension could be tol?
erated ; it was clear that those who advanced ?
}t did in fact deny the equality of the slave
States, and violate the first condition of Federal
unity. The Missouri Compromis^ which grew
out of this dispute, gave u^ tne larger part of
the Federal territory l0 l?e Nor^, and gave
the South on)- an e^nai r]ght lri the remin?
der. In ?ifj annexation of Texas and the Mex?
ican war the South might seem to be acting
aggressively. But Dr. Draper himself shows
that she was animated solely by considerations
of sell-protection. Immigration had given the
North an overwhelming ascendency in the
House of "Representatives ; the only security
ol the South lay in maintaining equality within
the Senate, and to do this it was essential that
'she should have the means of forming new
slave Slates, to counterbalance those rapidly
growing up in the Northwest. All her alleged
rapacity ot territory arose from this one cause.
She had more land than she could cultivate
with ber actual population ; in Texas and In
Cuba she sought not new plantations, but new
States ; not additional cotton lands, but addi?
tional votes in the Federal Senate. She never
claimed to control the North ; she desired only
that the North Ehould not be able to domineer
over her. From the moment that she gave up
the hope of maintaining equality In the Sen?
ate, it became evident that secession was only
a question of time. From the moment that a
party formed on the principle of sectional hos?
tility to the South acquired the control of the
Federal Executive, it was obvious that the time
had come. And no one baa ever been able to
maintain that the South cou d safely have re?
mained in the Union save on the inadmissible
hypothesis that she should have made np her
mind to submit, and net only to allow her in?
stitutions to be remodelled, but to allow them
to be remodelled by Northern legislation. JVo
' people ever accepted such subjection till they had
appealed, and appealed in vain, to the arbitra?
ment of battle."
Than this, no more compact statement of
the position occupied by the South, and of
the necessity as well as the right of Seces?
sion, could, under the circumstances, be
Dr. Draper makes it evident to 4he re?
viewer that "the bombardment of FortSam
"ter was in realiiy an act of self-defence,
"forced upou the South by Mr. Lincoln's d??
termination to reinforce the garrison.*'
The election of Mr. Lincoln was "a formal
"d?claration of war agaiDSt institutio*s as
"warmly cherished by the poorest white as
"by the richest Blave-owner ;" and it is "an
"absurd misconception of the whole Situa?
tion" which ascribes the action of the
South to "a conspiracy." This is candid,
anti to the purpose.
Of the Southern temperament and char?
acter the reviewer writes as follows' :
"The course of the war presents another
point on which his history contradicts his the?
oretical doctrines, as-to those who read lt
with vigilant and open minds-it does in
almost every page. Dr. Draper believes pro?
foundly in the influence of climate on national
character, and is perhaps the more tolerant
and temperate in his treatment of Southern
polity, because he imputes the preference ol
slavery, the fiery temper, the independent
spirit ol the South to the influences of isother?
mal lines. But the records ot the war show
that the climate had not affected the military
character of the Southerners. They still re?
semble Englishmen more than they resemble
any Southern Ration ; are still distinguished
by the pei'tinaciXF,- the endurance, the discipline,
and the steadiness of the English soldier, while
the . Northerners showed more of French Im?
petuosity in the onslaught, and French liability
to panic in repulse. Much more truth lies in
the contrast between the family life and do?
mestic ideas of North and South, as drawn,
however reluctantly, by our author ; and a
perusal of his work will leave the thoughtful
reader impressed with new respect and sym?
pathy for the thoroughly English character of
the South, and with an earnest hope that,
when she emerges from the gloom that still
hangs over her, it will be found that the best
features of her social life have survived the
lall of slavery-that Vie love of home, the rev?
erence for parents, the womanly and wifely
virtues of one sex, the chivalry and hsnor of
Vie other, still remain, as on the testimony of
an enemy they once were, the characteristics of
the Southern American, as of his English an?
During the war the Southern people had
little reason to bless their English cousins,
whatever the attractive force of the noble
qualities which they possess in common, but
it is none the less gratifying, on this ac?
count, that the first critical journal of the
day should write so warmly upon subjects
which lie near the Southern heart.

of the Cheraw and Greensboro' Bailroad
Company, and not of the Cheraw and Dar?

UPON the subject of the Conference pro?
posed to be bekl in the fall, the Marion Star
says: "We doubt the policy of these conf?r?
ences of 'leading men,' and are inclined
"to think we bad as well expend no gas so
"early in the campaign. 'Tis a poor general
"that betrays his plaos to the enemy. When
"the organization of the party for the Presi?
dential campaign commences, will it not be
"lime sufficient for a conference of the ' lead
" 'ing men?' "
